This is the sport-weight version of my bespoke vanilla sock pattern, both of which I use for variegated or self-striping yarn with contrasting heels and toes. These socks are worked cuff-down, with an eye of partridge heel flap and anatomically correct toes (for those of us with more angled toes) – so this pattern will result in defined left and right socks. This sport-weight version has different stitch counts and a slightly longer cuff and leg section than the original sock-weight pattern, but is otherwise the same. I love this heavier version for wearing inside my winter boots or for padding around the house on a cold New England morning.

Main color yarn: any sport-weight sock yarn, approx. 250-350 yards
Contrasting color yarn: any sport-weight sock yarn, approx. 60-75 yards
(Your yarn mileage will vary depending on the length of your sock leg and of your foot. I used one and a half skeins of Schoppel Wolle Ambiente for this pair (255 yards) and I wear a US 7.5.)
Needles: two 16” circular needles in US 2 (2.75 mm) or as needed to get gauge
Crochet hook (optional)
Tapestry needle

Suggested gauge:
28 sts x 36 rounds = 4”/10 cm worked in stockinette stitch
